Teams of three to 10 students are challenged to design, build and fly a model rocket that will climb to 800 feet with a payload of two raw eggs and stay aloft for 43 to 47 seconds. The payload must then return to earth unbroken. Cash prizes are awarded to the top finishers. NASA invites top teams to participate in their Student Launch Initiative, an advanced rocketry program.
Participation is limited to the first 1,000 teams who register by Nov. 30, 2011. For more information, visit http://www.rocketcontest.org/. Questions about this contest should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
